This cartoon has been banned for decades because of racial stereotyping. It is a strange cartoon but one that most people have probably never seen.

Amiri Baraka prepares a class for a musical performance. He creates a bass line, assigns students to categories of musical instruments, and tells them they will be playing against his recording of the bass line. He goes over basic rhythmic concepts. The tape ends abruptly.
